TCNR was created in 1998 by Law No. 708, and it is considered rare of its kind in Lebanon and subsequently has a great natural heritage value.
Its biodiversity derives from several elements that are grouped in a small terrestrial area of 3.8 km². TCNR also has a marine zone with a surface area (territorial waters) of about 113 km². It is characterized by the diversity of its ecological, marine and coastal ecosystems.  In addition, it is an important nesting site for migratory birds and the threatened sea turtles, within a diversity of ecosystems comprising a wide variety of flora and fauna species.
